Our family has been vacationing in Las Vegas for the last 15 years, several times we were fortunate enough to be here for New Years Eve. The parties are never ending, Las Vegas Blvd is shut down to vehicles and becomes a flurry of party goers, friends, families and excitement. This resort is our favorite vacation spot of all time.
